    The plain in Marratxí is the ideal terrain for hiking, cycling and riding. Along its paths, visitors can visit the municipality's many farmsteads and enjoy a territory which is catalogued in part as a nature area of special interest.

    The climb to Mount Son Cós, Es Puig Blanc or the excursion from Sa Cabaneta to Pòrtol following the Costa d'en Mas, Sa Cimentera and Can Parrisco roads are a few of the recommended suggestions.

    Each year in March, Marratxinet holds its Feria del Fang (Earthenware Fair), an exhibition created in 1984 as a tool to promote popular ceramics. Demonstrations by artisan potters, ceramics competitions, folk dances and diverse cultural acts take place during the course of the fair.

    Pòrtol celebrates the fiestas of Sant Marçal on June 30. The village residents attribute the beneficial qualities of the cistern water located behind the church to the powers to the saint, protector against plagues and illnesses. A wide variety of cultural acts, sports events and games take place over the course of a week. On Sant Marçal's day, a series of masses are held, which are attended by Mallorcans from all over the island.

    Pòrtol's summer fiestas are dedicated to the Mare de Déu del Carme and Pla de na Tesa's to Sant Bartomeu. The evening street fair in commemoration of Santa Ursula is held on October 20 in Marratxí, and includes the so-called Revetla de les Verges (Evening of the Virgins). In Sa Cabaneta, the village's young men roam the streets singing serenades and girls fête them with bunyols (fried drops of dough), which are typical in autumn, and wine.
